Thank you to Maine Historical Society and Susan Cummings-Lawrence for the information
Note: "These carved feet were ornamental supports for the Torah ark at Anshe Sfard, a Chassidic synagogue built on Cumberland Avenue near Wilmot Street in Portland in 1917. The ark probably held three Torahs. It was topped with a carved eagle, painted gold." - MHS website
